Another nice family flick for the Holidays, has some spiritual overtones, too
11 January 2012 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Doc" Holliday (Dave Coulier) is a two-bit conman, eking out a living by fooling others. The Doc, in a booster jacket, goes door to door, asking folks to contribute funds for the little league team that doesn't exist. So far, he has gotten away with it. Out of the blue, Doc is summoned to a lawyer's office. He, Doc, will inherit a lovely house from a deceased relative but only on the condition that he is married with kids. Thinking quickly, Doc declares that he is. What a whopper! Luckily for him, however, an orphaned brother and sister have run away from a foster home, knowing they were about to be split apart. Doc, finding them around the corner, invites them to stay with him and play the "pretend family" game. The children are smart enough to demand monetary compensation! Now, they need a mother, so Doc hires a nice nanny, Elizabeth (Alexa Fisher) to look after the kids while he goes to his new "fake" job at an insurance company. All too soon, Children's Services are looking for the children while the lawyer sends folks to obverve the family's routines. Also, Elizabeth uncovers the truth, too, but decides to stay, for various reasons. Can these pretenders fool everyone? This fine family flick has an engaging cast, humor, sweetness, spirituality, and fine Holiday lessons for the entire family. Almost everyone will get a laugh and a sigh from the doings here. Also nice is the lovely house where a good deal of the action takes place. If you are parents seeking another movie for crowd control as the excitement of the Holidays approach, this is a darn good choice.
